Our counselors believe it is through healthy relationships and connection with others that we live a full and authentic life. For many of us, our ability to connect with others has been deeply compromised by heartache, betrayal, rejection, neglect, abuse or trauma. This limits our ability to engage in emotional, relational and sexual intimacy and can result in addiction, further abuse and destroyed relationships.

At Rogue River Counseling our counselors help clients find their way back to the relationships that allow for love and growth. This path is through recovering from addiction, repairing betrayal, healing trauma and understanding our anger, rage, disappointment and hurt. Each of our counselors are uniquely trained to walk with individuals, couples, and families as they navigate this journey towards an unencumbered life that is full of freedom, intimacy and connection.

Meet Our Team

Our team is comprised of experienced, professional counselors
with a variety of counseling specialties.

Jason Hovey LCPC, CSAT-S

I started Rogue River Counseling because I believe that one of our most fundamental needs is connection.  Knowing and being known. Those who come to our practice generally have had this connection completely  undermined and destroyed.  And some unfortunately have never really had the experience of being known, or the chance to know another.  It is awe-inspiring for me to meet people as they begin to rise out of the ashes of relational distress, betrayal or addiction and begin to find true connection and the freedom to be authentically known and loved.

Before I became a counselor I was a business owner and a custom home builder.  I am a husband, father and friend.  These roles and experiences greatly influence how I function as a therapist and my understanding of the myriad of roles each person plays in life.

Ann Taliaferro LGPC, CSAT-C

In those moments that feel devastating in our lives, there are also possibilities for transformation and growth. I have always been awed and inspired by the resilience of those who face great challenges and use them to move forward with determination and hope. I value the collaboration between client and counselor in identifying and exploring where and how change takes place. I always seek to create a safe space in which to practice new ideas and behaviors with curiosity and compassion.

I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor and a certified substance abuse counselor. I completed undergraduate studies in Psychology at University of Maryland’s global campus and completed my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at Capella University. I have completed training in grief work with David Kessler and Bessel van der Kolk’s trauma certification. My area of interest is in the impact of trauma on the brain as a root cause of anxiety, depression, addiction, and other mental health disorders. My goal with clients is to identify strengths and build the skills necessary to face challenges in a new way. I am currently in training for CSAT.

Jeff Percacciante LMSW, CSAT-C

The human experience is colored by how we create relationships: to the world, to each other and to ourselves. My approach to therapy is rooted in how we, together, can tenderly observe where our connections need to be healed. The therapy room is a garden where we can tug at the root of our obstacles and create a bright, open future.

I am a clinically trained mental health therapist with a Masters in Social Work through Tulane University.  My practice has a dedicated focus on relationships, addiction, attachment, grief, loss and recovery. I am also a certified Yoga instructor with over 900 hours of professional training and a decade of teaching experience. I am ever curious about the overlapping space between mental and physical health, and firmly believe in the power of movement and breath to bring mental healing and clarity.

My intention is to create an inclusive space where we can do important, life affirming work. I have a passion for equality, and I welcome all people regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or walk of life. It would bring me great joy to be a witness to your healing journey.

Counselor Kim Clemens


It is within our lowest, most vulnerable moments that we can start the process of recovery and become more connected to our pain as well as joy. I believe in harnessing personal responsibility and self-reflection to become aware of what we are capable of as human beings. Inherently we are all looking for the person or persons who will and want to look for us in this world, and facilitate a shared connection.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, Licensed Clinical Professional Art Therapist, and board certified and registered Art Therapist with the Art Therapy Credentials Board. I am training towards an attachment focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) certification. I have taken Ken Adams’ Overcoming Enmeshment training and am knowledgeable in enmeshment recovery. I have trained with Staci Sprout in regards to treating female sex and love addicts, as well as Kelly McDaniel for consultation around the concept of Mother Hunger attachment woundings.

I bring to Rogue River a creative and explorative mindset to cultivate healing in an inherent and body-based way. Clients are free to express themselves through a range of different types of art media including paint, pastel, printmaking, clay, collage, pencil, mixed media, etc. I work with many top down and bottom up processes based on the individual and what works best for them. 

I received my Master’s of Science degree in Art Therapy and Counseling from Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia. My undergraduate work focused on the areas of Studio Art, Psychology, and Gerontology. I have experience working with those recovering from substance abuse related addictions, sexual trauma, abuse, neglect, sex addiction, pornography addiction, love addiction, and partner betrayal trauma.

Aaron Tempel LCPC, CSAT

I have always admired the strength and courage it takes for someone to participate in therapy. The people I am lucky enough to work with are resilient and have endured great pain. I am proud to be a part of their recovery, from celebrating successes and overcoming obstacles, to grieving losses and weathering disappointments. The relationship I build with my clients is the most fundamental aspect for change and healing and I pride myself to be a part of my client’s journey to stability, happiness, and contentment.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, and National Certified Counselor. I am experienced in working with dual diagnosis and chemical addiction and have special interests in working with trauma, anxiety, men’s issues, self-esteem, sex addiction, and sexual health, attitudes, and functioning. I am trained in Attachment Focused EMDR and currently pursuing certification in EMDR. I am an integrative therapist, relying on largely person centered, relationship focused, cognitive behavioral, and attachment interventions. I have experience in college settings, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization programs, residential treatment, and outpatient therapy settings.

Nina Boyd LCPC, CSAT- C

I am a strong believer in therapy being a collaborative, healing, and restorative experience. As Pema Chödrön once said, “Let difficulty transform you. And it will. In my experience, we just need help in learning how to not run away.” But that’s easier said than done – what are the steps to getting to a better place? Where do you even start? You are not alone in this journey. I take great pride in building a therapeutic connection and a safe space for you to be your genuine self so that you may find that resiliency within. I am passionate about helping my clients through those difficult moments and I want to help chip away at the harmful layers you’ve created for survival which no longer serve you.

I am a Black and Filipino-American therapist who takes pride in being multiculturally sensitive. My specialty areas include trauma healing, anxiety and depression, abuse, intimacy and betrayal, kink and alternative lifestyles, LGBTQ+, love and sex addiction, and family and relationship conflict. I welcome the unique qualities that make up each individual and believe that these qualities are hidden strengths that can be honed to navigate life in a healthy, manageable way.

My journey first started with obtaining a Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). I proudly trained as a clinician at Trinity Washington University, gained experience as an intern at St. Elizabeths Hospital in D.C., and gained post-graduate experience at Johns Hopkins Children’s Mental Health Center. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in both MD and DC, and I am currently in training for my certification in sex addiction therapy.

Anna Boehk Administrator

Development is a passion, empathy a strength. From a young age, I have sought out relationships and opportunities that allow me to stretch and flex my talents in order to support and encourage a team and to nurture an environment of positivity and connectivity. Here at Rogue River, I am working steadfastly to develop a comfortable and safe atmosphere for the clinicians to do their best work in helping our clients.

I graduated from Franciscan University with two bachelor’s degrees in English and Theology, and I currently attend University of Maryland, College Park as I work on my Master’s in Library Science with a specialization in Museum and Archive Scholarship.

As you can see, I love research, organization, serving others, and interpersonal connection – which makes my position as Administrative Coordinator here at Rogue River a perfect fit for me. Outside of the office, I am a chaser of good literature, a keeper of a rambunctious calico cat, and a caretaker of a wild rose garden.
